I usually make this cheeseball at Christmastime, and it's one of the reasons I look forward to the holidays! I've found that the easiest (although not the neatest) way to mix this up is with my hands. Don't be fooled by the short list of ingredients. This is delicious and full of flavor. I could honestly eat the whole thing myself. Luckily, my husband and kids love it too, which helps curb my holiday weight gain a bit. I often make smaller cheese balls as neighbor gifts and deliver them with a box of crackers. I've had more than one person tell me they ate the whole thing in one sitting.
Who Dished It Up First
I got this recipe from my friend Leann. It's a holiday tradition and her house, and now it's a tradition at mine.
